No More Worlds to Conquer: Sixteen People Who Defined Their Time - And What They Did Next Chris Wright

What do you do next if you have walked on the moon? How do you follow the first perfect 10 in Olympic history? How do you move on after surviving a plane crash? Some people will forever be defined by a single moment.

Chris Wright has travelled the globe tracking down a remarkable assortment of high achievers. From the astronaut who turned to painting to the World Cup-winning footballer who became an undertaker, each has grappled with the challenge of finding meaning once their fame has faded.

In a series of revealing interviews with strikingly contrasting personalities, we discover Chuck Yeager's irascibility, John McCarthy's extraordinary even-tempered decency, the tough practicality of Nadia Comaneci and the fastidiously structured mind of mountaineer Reinhold Messner.

Though very different, all these oddly feted individuals have one trait in common: after their appointment with destiny the did not spend the rest of their lives looking backwards. No More Worlds to Conquer explains why.

`If someone is renowned for a single moment or achievement, what do they do next? Chris Wright picks out 16 such characters from recent history and asks them this very question. An entertaining portrait of those whose public contribution can be summed up in a one-line epitaph' Daily Mail
